Kroehnert run out for 99

Tom Kroehnert.

TOM Kroehnert is probably still searching his kitbag wondering where that last run went.

After three successive ducks, the Souths Services Premier League captain stepped up to the plate on Sunday and was on track to guide his side to victory against Brothers.

That was until a mix-up with teammate Lewis Chevalley (12no) saw him run out for 99.

"We needed 30-odd runs off four overs so we had to take every run we could get," Kroehnert recalled.

"I didn't know how many I was on. I was at the non-striker's end and had a miscommunication with the other bloke."

Stranded, Kroehnert had no choice but to "tuck the bat under the wing and walk".

Souths finished 10 runs short in the run chase, on 4 for 210.

Kroehnert is still waiting to reach triple figures for the first time since 2009.
